Bashu, the little boy who has lost his house and family in a bombing raid, gets away and finds himself in an area far-off the war zone. In his new surroundings, everything seems quite unknown and strange to him. Na’i, the woman whose husband is in travel, finds Bashu in her farm and gives him a place. The next day, Bashu tells Na’i about his past in his own language, then Na’i accepts him as her own child. Na’i does her best to help Bashu adapt to the new environment. As the time passes, they find a common language to communicate with each other. Despite the many problems and the others’ disagreement, Na’i keeps Bashu by her. Finally, Na’i’s husband is back, and by encountering Bashu, he also accepts him wholeheartedly.
